New Signings

Soundway Records: Soundway Records is a British-based independent record label founded and run by English DJ and music producer Miles Cleret. It started in 2002 with the release of a compilation of Ghanaian music from the 1970s: ''Ghana Sounds: Afrobeat, Funk & Fusion in '70s Ghana''. Since then the label has released a series of critically acclaimed compilation albums and re-issues of African, Caribbean, Latin and Asian music from the 1950s - 1980s. These include the best-selling compilation "Doing It In Lagos" (2016) and others such as Nigeria Special, Ghana Special & Kenya Special compilation albums that Cleret spent years bringing together. With these compilations alongside a string of highly sought-after rare reissue albums, the label has also began in 2012 to develop a series of original contemporary releases. These include releases from acts such as Batida, Ibibio Sound Machine, Debruit & Alsarah, Ondatropica, The Meridian Brothers, Bomba Estereo, Family Atlantica, Dexter Story, The Heliocentrics, Lord Echo and The Mauskovic Dance Band.
Helena Deland: Helena Deland's sincere pop is poetic and undeniably magnetic. Melodically driven, Deland is equipped with clever word play, lush rock instrumentation, and a myriad of influences spanning anywhere from '60s Parisian pop to fuzz rock.
Cults: Cults made their name in black and white. A pair of film school dropouts who burst onto the New York scene with a perfect single and a darkly retro sound, the band’s first two albums play like noirish documentaries on a lost girl group. Four years after 'Static', Cults returned with 'Offering', an exciting collection of songs bursting with heart, confidence, shimmering melody and buzzing life. The time off has given the band new energy and new ideas–Cults are working in Technicolor now. Madeline Follin and Brian Oblivion, both 28, still live in New York. They still finish each other’s thoughts and still share a love black humor (this is a band that sampled cult leader Jim Jones on their first hit). But the pair have put some blood on the tracks since their breakout debut: they’ve toured the world, built a devoted audience, survived a breakup, grown up in green rooms, parted ways with their old label and made a home of their new one.
Lost Under Heaven: Lost Under Heaven is Ellery Roberts and Ebony Hoorn, the lovers of the title. Ellery's name might be familiar as the frontman of WU LYF, the incendiary Manchester four-piece whose rhetoric, imagery and solitary album described a new model for the untamed fury of youth. Ebony and Ellery met in the band's dying days in 2013. Ellery returned to Manchester from touring and met Ebony (visiting from Amsterdam) in the derelict squat that a group of Manchester based musicians shared. Invoking the primal and forceful; Ellery's raw, distinctive voice, untamed since his teenage days in WU LYF, is counterbalanced by Ebony's cool restraint. Meanwhile, the instrumentation ranges from lush grandeur to jarring stylization.
Ryan Hemsworth: Over the last five years, Ryan Hemsworth has established himself as a versatile figure in music. In the time between Elsewhere and Hemsworth's last solo release, 2014's Alone for the First Time, the 27-year-old artist has kept plenty busy, from putting out the Taking Flight EP along with the second volume in his Ryanpack mixtape series in 2015 to continuing to maintain his Secret Songs label. Hemsworth also hit the road last summer with R&B phenom Tinashe for her Joyride World Tour, and during a week off he took a detour to Atlanta in the interest of scheduling a few recording

The growth is more than evident. Featuring a coterie of guests—from up-and-coming Atlanta artists like YL Stunna and Yakki to rap heavyweights like 21 Savage and Bay Area legend, he's gained a reputation as an adept tastemaker with a golden ear for talent, and an inventive producer capable of switching styles at the drop of a record player needle. Those facets of his E-40— TKTK possesses an impressive level of polish while still retaining the unique melodicism and musicality that Hemsworth's come to be known for. From the blocky percussion and plucked strings of the sunny B La B and Kamo-featuring "Beep Beep," to the gorgeous descending tones running throughout the hard-hitting G Perico collaboration "Don't Fall in Love," Elsewhere is a perfect representation of an artist pushing themselves to new heights while still retaining their core sound.

Above all, Hemsworth wanted to use Elsewhere —which was initially conceived as a mixtape before Last Gang offered to release it as a proper album—as a way to put on some of the brightest new talents in hip-hop, once again embracing his uncanny A&R abilities. One thing's for sure: after Elsewhere hits, plenty of listeners will be more than caught up—further cementing Hemsworth's ability to be constantly ahead of the musical curve, both in choosing the artists he works with and the forward-thinking music he puts to tape along with them.
Lucius: Lucius is an indie pop band, co-founded by lead vocalists and principal songwriters Jess Wolfe, Holly Laessig with Dan Molad on production and drums and the multi-instrumentalist and lead guitarist Peter Lalish.
The Dandy Warhols: From their alternative psych beginnings in the mid-'90s to their brief pop-funk dabblings a decade later, American indie quartet The Dandy Warhols never shied away from experimentation or getting a little weird. Formed in Portland, Oregon in 1994, the band initially invited comparisons to influences the Velvet Underground and Ride, but their cool, detached demeanours and knack for melody also provided America (and beyond) with an answer to Brit-pop. Iconic to say the least.
King Tuff: King Tuff is the neo-garage alter ego of multifaceted musician Kyle Thomas. Adopting the moniker in his teens as a play on his initials and the name King Tut, Thomas wouldn't begin playing as Tuff until 2006, when he self-released an album via CD-R between playing with freaky folk revivalists Feathers and J. Mascis' stoner metal band Witch. His full-length debut, Was Dead, arrived in October 2008 for the Colonel label, introducing his anthemic lo-fi sonics to the masses. Touring with Hunx & His Punx and Witch, and releasing an album with his off-kilter power pop band Happy Birthday, put the Tuff project on the back burner until 2011, when a split single with Hex Dispensers arrived. A year later, he teased his follow-up album with the Wild Desire single for Suicide Squeeze before offering the full monty, simply called King Tuff, which made the jump to the revered Sub Pop label and found Tuff expanding the musical palette to show his yen for retro-pop melodies. He returned in 2014 with third album Black Moon Spell, a fuzzy eruption of glam rock and funky garage pop produced by the Go's Bobby Harlow.
Saro: Los Angeles native Saro’s masterful pop-noir takes you on a genre-bending journey that cuts deep to the heart but is simultaneously elegant and alluring. His signature, soaring falsetto, rides atop brooding synths and unique instrumentation that goes from downtempo alt/R&B to electronic, orchestral works that strike a gracefully, cinematic tone.
Morgan Kibby: A classical pianist, cellist, vocalist, producer and composer, multi-talented Morgan Kibby has an oeuvre that spans many genres, medias and interests. A post-high school gap year turned into a 7 year creative journey, during which she was a writer, keyboard player and vocalist on two M83 albums and tour cycles ('Saturdays=Youth' & 'Hurry Up We’re Dreaming'). The culmination of this partnership was her first platinum single with “Midnight City,” a Grammy nomination and headlining the Hollywood Bowl.

As a writer, producer and performer, Kibby has co-written with Panic! at the Disco on their platinum and Grammy nominated album 'Death of a Bachelor', released solo material under the moniker White Sea, remixed over 20 tracks from Britney Spears to Jose Gonzalez and sang on trailers for Harry Potter and Lady In The Water and scored the critically acclaimed French film Bang Gang, she has been described by Rolling Stone as "epic and ardent," while LA Weekly coined her "LA's renaissance woman of pop.”

Kibby collaborated with Wolvesmouth chef Craig Thornton on his Lucy Walker-directed documentary for The New Yorker and contributed score and sound design to his latest art installation, which opened at MOCA in Los Angeles. Kibby was selected for the Sundance Composer Lab, spending two weeks at the iconic Skywalker Sound in Marin County.  

Most recently, Kibby has made her first foray into television composition, scoring 2 Sentence Horror Story, as well as the documentary series Finding Genius. She has contributed vocal production to David Campbell’s most recent score for Finding Fellini, just wrapped the upcoming documentary Interior Motives, and is preparing for three upcoming narrative features: The Amaranth, Eva Husson’s Girls of the Sun and Spell. Kibby has just wrapped Fear Us Women by Oscar-nominated director David Darg.
JR JR: With an ear for Brian Wilson-esque harmony, JR JR swirl indie pop, folk, and electronic elements into one breezy package. Originally named Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. with typical irreverence, the duo of Joshua Epstein (also of the Silent Years) and Daniel Zott came together in Detroit in 2009. Working out of a basement studio, the pair worked to create a sound that was danceable without sacrificing anything in the songwriting department, merging intricate and airy melodies with solid programmed beats and synth atmospherics.
Warbly Jets: Ask Julien O'neill how Warbly Jets fits into LA's music scene and he'll have a simple answer for you: They don't. They exist out there in the ether—caught somewhere in between yesterday and today, where massive rock 'n' roll melodies brush up against skittish breakbeats, swoon-worthy strings, and laser-guided synth lines. Then again, water doesn't fit into the LA scene either but we still need it to live.
Jen Cloher: After graduating from acting at NIDA, Jen Cloher decided to make music. In 2006 she released her debut album Dead Wood Falls as Jen Cloher & The Endless Sea, garnering an Aria nomination for Best Female Artist. A twist of events saw Jen relocate to New Zealand for two years where she continued to write. After a brief hiatus she returned to Melbourne enlisting the talents of Laura Jean, Biddy Connor and Tom Healy (Tiny Ruins) and recorded her second album Hidden Hands (2009).

In 2010 The Endless Sea disbanded and Jen took time out to experiment with new sounds, returning in 2013 with her third album In Blood Memory. With Courtney Barnett on guitar, Bones Sloane on bass and Jen Sholakis on drums In Blood Memory is regarded by many as her strongest work to date. It was nominated for Australia’s most prestigious music award, the Australian Music Prize in 2013. Jen’s fourth studio album will be released in 2017 through Milk! Records.
Unknown Mortal Orchestra: Unknown Mortal Orchestra, fronted by New Zealand-born, Portland-based Ruban Nielson, has that rare ability to both utilize and explore the roots of psychedelia to invent a brand new narrative. Known best for the unhinged psych-soul ballads on 'II' and the wildly cathartic and up-beat 'Multi-Love', UMO never fails to implement a dizzying feeling of airy, humid-ness against your temples by way of a psychedelic canvas built out of re-wired old synthesizers, intertwined guitar and trumpet and bouncing bass.
Blonde Redhead: Not many bands can handle long careers and continue to evolve from record to record: Blonde Redhead holds a place in this category. In the nearly 25 years of their career, the acclaimed New York-based trio has wandered through the noise rock of their early years, to the refined dreampop of Misery Is A Butterfly, to the sensual electronic textures of 2014’s Barragán. Despite the variety of styles, the band has always been able to keep a personality and a unique identity that is easily recognizable.

Fresh from the Numero box set Masculin Féminin (September 2016)and the remix album Freedom of Expression on Barragan (March 2016) , Japanese-born Kazu Makino and twin Italian-Americans Amedeo and Simone Pace have returned with a new EP, titled 3 O'CLOCK. The EP was released March 10th, 2017 on Asa Wa Kuru Records under license to Italian label Ponderosa Music & Art.

This melancholic EP, with an aromantic graft, follows the tour that, in 2016, saw Blonde Redhead reinvent their cult album Misery Is A Butterfly with a string quartet. The new atmospheres developed during this tour emerge occasionally in the pieces of 3 O’CLOCK, as the band pushes even more in the direction of a massive presence of strings and wind instruments such as the viola, cello, violin, clarinet, oboe, flute and trumpet. The EP was made with the help of, among others, the string quartet ACME (American Contemporary Music Ensemble), and Eyvind Kang, an American composer and violinist who collaborated with Blonde Redhead on Misery Is A Butterfly and the latest tour in support of the album.
